Summer is on the horizon, which means vacation time. When I think of easy packing for vacation, I think maxi dresses. The family and I took a Caribbean cruise a couple of months ago, and procrastinating when it came to packing, I defaulted to pulling mostly maxi dresses for the trip. If you are not already a fan of maxi dresses for vacations, then I hope to convince you. No matter what your body type, the maxi style is flattering on everyone, and even more a must have for vacation.
For one, maxi dresses are very easy on your suitcase space as they take up little space. My trick is to roll them, giving you more space in your suitcase for more pieces. Secondly, maxi dresses are the perfect versatile piece on vacation as they work well for both day or night! Bring your maxi dress to the beach or pool during the day and simply throw it over your bathing suit when not at the pool or on the beach. Of course, if you want to wear your maxi dress at night, you can add some beautiful statement earrings and be ready for an awesome evening.
This maxi dress from LuLus is incredibly comfortable, gorgeous and getting it on clearance makes this maxi dress even more extraordinary. I am always checking the clearance section of my favorite online stores, and when I saw that this dress had been reduced from $78 to $17, I was ecstatic. I only wish they had more prints on clearance that I could have bought a couple more. As for footwear, any type of flat sandals with a maxi dress is perfect.
As I wore this dress for an evening dinner on the cruise, I opted to wear these beautiful statement earrings from BeBe. These earrings were also on clearance, a 70% discount for only $8.99. That price for these beautiful earrings is truly a score.
If you are thinking of what to pack for your next summer vacation, then make sure you have a maxi dress (or two) ready to be packed in that suitcase.
